— New York Mets (@Mets) April 13, 2018
The Milwaukee Brewers walk into this evening’s contest with a 7-6 record that ranks them 2nd overall in the NL Central. Although the Brewers are having a rocky start to the season, they’re benefitting off the fact that the bottom 3-teams of the division are having an even worse start to the year. Recently, the Brewers pulled themselves above .500 by defeating the Cardinals 2 games to 1. Now Milwaukee looks to chase the division-leading Pirates by pulling one over New York. However, the Mets might just be the toughest team the Brewers have faced all season long. Nevertheless, Friday’s MLB betting online odds are giving the Brewers a decent shot on the road. Zach Davies will get the start this evening. Davies is 0-1 on the year with a 5.40 ERA and a 1.29 WHIP.
Players to Watch: Jonathan Villar (3 RBI, .310 BA, .333 SLG), Domingo Santana (3 RBI, .289 BA, .311 SLG), and Lorenzo Cain (5 RBI, .283 BA, .435 SLG).
New York Mets
The New York Mets are off to a great start as they enter tonight’s matchup with a 10-1 record. On top of that, the Mets enter this evening’s matchup riding an 8-game win streak. This gives New York a lofty 3 ½ game lead at the top of the NL East. However, considering the slumps the Mets have hit over the last couple of years, it’s pretty clear that the franchise cannot afford to let off the gas. Interestingly enough, the Mets aren’t all that favored this evening. Does that mean bettors should take them heavily straight up? Firstly, you must consider who they’re sending to the mound: Steven Matz. Matz is 0-1 on the year with a 3.00 ERA and a 1.33 WHIP.
Players to Watch: Asdrubal Cabrera (3 HR, 5 RBI, .333 BA), Yoenis Cespedes (3 HR, 10 RBI, .178 BA), and Todd Frazier (6 RBI, .222 BA, .333 SLG).
